Over more than four decades, historians and political scientists have parsed almost every aspect of the “Saturday Night Massacre” — from the events that led to the shakeup at the Justice Department on Oct. 20, 1973, to how the decisions made that day would ultimately accelerate the downfall of then-President Richard M. Nixon.
"Who Coined 'Saturday Night Massacre'? A Birthday Party at a YMCA May Hold the Key." is from the May 12, 2017 National section of The Washington Post. It was written by Amy B Wang and narrated by Jill Melancon.
